NEW AGE BUSINESSES WITH A RUSTIC TOUCH! Your boss fired you because of the RECESSION? Now's the time to quit the blue collar world and go GREEN! While you still can, Get an old Toyota truck or a Chevvie, not Ford cuz every piece dies at 100k miles..a Chevvie for cheap, (you can always find JUNK YARD used parts real cheap unlike Jap trucks.) . And start a garden business. There are many ways to do it. First, DO VICTORY GARDENS FOR FOOD. Believe me, it's easy. You do not need to go to agricultural college. Just approach this as a regular person with a certain amount of upper body strength, good taste and undercharge all the people who have degrees in this field. In fact, to bring prices down, get the home owner and his children to help you do the work on weekends. The only things you'll ever need to know about gardens are contained at the GARDEN ARCHIVE. A FREE SEMINAR with 100 classrooms in it!
A SECOND IDEA, that goes with the first. Start BUILDING pine fences and using the demolition wood that the homeowner has paid you TO HAUL AWAY for custom BOOK SHELVES AS IT IS FREQUENTLY REDWOOD from the old days before Redwood Protection! And the grain on old fences is terrific.
Get a saw, sander and instantly, there's a fine carpenter's dynamic in the air, very strong out there now in a RECESSION! I just put l00 feet of fencing, (north side of my yard, East side, torn down,) dozens of redwood planks up for sale at 6$ a plank. 6 feet high, a foot wide. And I got a lot of bites. This fence material was used to surround the back of property (which I rent btw,) --I loved it, until the neighbor got mad as a few planks had water destruction (fifty years in the sun and rain, how not?) But most planks were primo, great rippling, spiraling deep grain as it's been up for 50 years and it weathered! But a few were down near bushes that kept them damp and neither neighbor PAINTED THEIR SIDE so that deteriorated things. Still, I let the neighbors do cyclone fencing on one side, the guy in back did crummy PINE fencing and me, hinky heart and all, I CARRIED the redwood to where I'd positioned a lot of RISERS, stacked then tarped it waiting for my son to return home and build and sell outdoor furniture and amazing bookshelves.
THIS IS beautiful wood. Years of exposure have made it look like the surface of a brook. It has that much grain. Getting a lot of answers on Craigs list. Wish my kid would come home, but I'm selling it if I must. It's great wood for carpentry projects. You could find some of this rare stuff as OLD FENCES are often made of genuine redwood whereas today they're all pine. Be a great biz for some young woodworker with a saw, nails, screwdriver, building CUSTOM bookshelf units. The trick is, OLD redwood FENCES are valuable beyond belief and getting them is a prize, so that young kid would have to also PULL DOWN OLD FENCES for clients and put up the new PINE ones that folks want. SO BECOME A FENCER!.
Then go into your workshop and use the grainy wood. Make bookshelves. Everyone needs them. And If you can do your shelves easily, might as well sell used books too. Garage sales let them go for a buck a box at sundown Sunday. READ "HOW TO SELL BOOKS" Vendors are only as good as their reputations but you as a begining bookman will only be as strong as your shelves, so learn how to BUILD THOSE SHELVES
You have any young people you'd like to start in a business? Your Drippy nephew maybe? If people invested in cottage businesses instead of hedge funds and stocks, there'd be no billionaires jumping out of buildings. Fund a strong boy who is honest. Start them in this business. You do the books every Friday night. Keep tabs of the earnings, the clients. Maybe run the phones, too.
Another great business besides fences, wood shelves would be DRIP IRRIGATION, much needed in this time of Drought. Take that smart nephew to HOME DEPOT and get him his first drip emitter kit and a manual. Read up on what this is by clicking on that article. The frugal way to water a large garden. Have your charge, your boy, your nephew get an old 75 Toyota truck to carry this light weight pipe on, you won't need 8 cylinders. The pipe and fittings are light. Paint a sign on the side of truck.reading "GO GREEN with DRIPPY NEPHEW.COM WE DO FRUGAL h20 SETUPS for your GARDEN. Then, expand to doing ROOF TOP GARDENS for folks who want to have a VICTORY GARDEN but don't have yard space. See them at theGARDEN INDEX.
NEXT BUSINESS IDEA. MOSS AND TROUGHS ferns, small bulbs woodland plants. Faux Stone troughs are made using cement, vermiculite, peat moss. Fill them with rich potting soil or acid soil found in the shady woods. Forest soil is usually acid. You can even do a moss nursery on a shady piece of land if you have it. Create the natural look of Fallen logs with their dimples, those little round KNOT 'holes' filed with moss.there are INSTRUCTIONS online, cement, vermiculite, peat mixed..... http://www.mackeybooks.com/make_a_trough.html and fill with ferns & MOSS.
http://home.howstuffworks.com/how-to-create-a-trough-garden.htm They are a great look ! PAINT YOUR ad on the SIDE OF your TRUCK " MOSSY ROCKS, STONE FENCES, MOSS TROUGHS" Everyone's going to stop you in traffic to get your business card.
I ADORE MY CYCLONE FENCE. Not Only because I cannot see it, but also as It's the cheapest thing out there, cheaper than any other kind.. And you can cover it with greens so that the wire cannot be seen. http://www.hooverfence.com/forms/clest.htm has pricing on cyclone fencing by foot, calculating posts you'll need, a wonderful site.
LAST IDEA: STONE FENCES. On the East Coast where there is both abundant field stone and acid soil both, one can do lavish field stone fences, made of weathered stone with MOSS set in the crevices for a Japanese look. Rock gardens and weathered stone walls pay well.
